Trough London

25 05 2017

London continues to get down, err, under with the second installment of Australian-originated gay party Trough hitting soon. According to their website:

TROUGH, named after a vessel pigs drink out of, was founded 10 years ago in Melbourne Australia. Over the years TROUGH has amalgamated jocks, bears, hunks, beards, queers, twinks and in-betweeners into one pretty mess on the dancefloor inside Australia’s biggest and boldest mens cruise venue, CLUB80. As broad as the crowd is, so is the music with DJs slamming Berlin-esque (m)anthems, deep house, sexy beats and throbbing baselines to a dark room of a sweaty pit. After 10 years TROUGH is now ready to sow its seeds in international soil to give the rest of the world a good dose of the T_OUGH love. TROUGH is also internationally renowned for its visionary photographic imagery and video art promos, all produced and art directed by TROUGH founder Nik Dimopoulos. Each campaign explores different sexual practises and fetishes as themes, combining both the sexual and the sometimes absurdist nature of fetishised ideas and attractions using everyday found objects and DIY crafting. It is fused together with the ‘hot talent’ sourced from the events themselves. Combined with mantastic multimedia / performance / installation / laser and projection spectacular, TROUGH firmly puts the ART back into dance pARTy!

The – needless to say – very NSFW promotional video is below:

And meanwhile, back in Oz:
